School districts should use common sense

September 11, 2012

Uh Oh! It seems to me when an "independent consultant" talks about "evaluation" in the terms of "the oldest" they're more concerned about tenure. ("How to evaluate a teacher")

Any fair evaluation of such a diverse group as a teaching staff can only be accomplished if that group trusts the process/evaluations to be fair and unbiased without agenda. They should not in any way relate to "evaluation" and years of dedicated service, to a means of balancing the budget.

Tenure is indeed a privileged status, yet it ensures quality and professionalism and gives importance to due process. I would encourage districts to use their own common sense when jumping through dictated hoops from Lansing.
